Ondo: Bus driver, passengers feared dead in Benin-Ore Expressway robbery attack



The driver and some passengers in a Young Shall Grow luxury bus are feared to have been killed in a robbery attack on Benin-Ore Expressway on Wednesday morning.

Reports said the overnight bus was attacked at Ofosu in Ondo State between 3am and 4am.

The driver was reportedly shot dead while the passengers fled into the bush.

However, soldiers who responded to a distress call from the scene allegedly opened fire in passengers that were coming out of the bush, killing some in the process.

The situation led to a total blocking of both sides of the busy expressway.
